“And when he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.” And when they had done this, they enclosed a large number of fish, and their nets were breaking.”
Luke 5:4-6 ESV
This passage is a great reminder to me that God’s plan will not fail, even if it looks like it will at first. Simon says to Jesus that they fished all night and caught nothing but Jesus said to let down the nets for a catch and Simon caught more fish than he could handle. God’s plan was not that Simon catch the fish on his own but instead, through relying on Jesus.
I run into this situation daily where I encounter something I can’t do on my own or that falls right through my hands and I forget that maybe I just need to give to Jesus. What else in my life could I give to Jesus? The answer is A LOT.
My takeaway from this is that my plans will inevitably fail because I am broken and fallible but because God is perfect, His plans will never fail. I need to trust that He is working for my good and give it to Him, completely.
God is good, God is sovereign and God is a much better at planning than I am. Of this I have no doubt.
I read this today and it spoke volumes to me.
Sometimes I get so wrapped up in what I can or can’t see that I forget that God sees so much more.
Be encouraged to walk by faith and not by sight! 🙌
I love this passage because it reminds me to always have God at the forefront of my mind. If He is always present in my decisions and thoughts, it’s much harder for me to stray.
I am completely fallible but through Him, all things are possible and if he is on my mind and on my heart, there is no room for anything else.
It’s been long enough. I can honestly say I believe I am ready to get back on Facebook and Twitter.
Why go back?
Mainly to help spread the Gospel but also to be more available to friends and family who use Facebook and Twitter for comms. I don’t like what these social media sites stand for and how they use our info for advertising but I feel like I must go where the people are.
It will be a challenge but God will get me through
